Finding a Band

If you find a dead bird with a metal band, color-bands, or any other marker or device attached, please report your finding at the Bird Banding Laboratory website.

You will be asked to report the band number and where and when you found the bird. The information will shared with the original bander and you will be presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for your contribution to avian science that includes the bird’s original banding location, date, and it’s age at that time.

KBO’s banding program provides valuable information about bird population demographics and migration in the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion. Many other government agencies, academic institutions, and science-based organizations also band birds to help answer questions about longevity, migration, and population status.
